UNDER YOUR THUMB by BYRON YOUTH THEATRE

On Thursday 28 November 2019 at 6:00pm
Byron Youth Theatre’s latest original production: Social Action Youth Theatre at its BEST!

Open up a newspaper, watch the news, read the comments on a not even controversial Facebook post. Why so much abuse? This is one of the main questions posed by Byron Youth Theatre’s (BYT) latest production, Under Your Thumb.
“Youth audiences from previous BYT productions nominated that we devise a show exploring issues of abuse, in relationships, social media and in our wider world,” shares director Lisa Apostolides. "They are looking for answers, how we can change”.
 
The development and production of Under Your Thumb has been made possible through funding from CASP Regional Arts NSW and Northern Rivers Community Foundation.  BYT have also been supported by Arts Northern Rivers, Byron Youth Service, the Women’s Resource Service, Byron Community Association and Brunswick Picture House, all of whom recognise the importance of these issues.  
 
“The Brunswick Picture House is committed to supporting the talented youth in our community and the future stars of our stage.  We are excited to support this innovative youth theatre company whose work is so important to all those it embraces in our community," said Brett Haylock, Brunswick Picture House co-owner.
 
The performance includes live music, dance, dramatic scenes and slam poetry.  It contains content that some people may find triggering and is most appropriate for those aged 15+.
